:15 p.m., singer and song writer, james taylor. host: stephen dinan is politics editor with the washington times and he is here to talk to us about the fiscal cliff. what's next? so let's get to it. on friday you had the lead story with the headline boehner's plan fails to win over g.o.p. the collapse is a serious blow to house speaker john boehner who hoped to gain leverage in his discussion with president obama and signals conservative republicans are unwilling to stomach any rise in tax rates even on those making more than $1 million which was mr. boehner's plan. so walk us through what happened on friday. how did we get there? and it seems like the speaker of the house didn't see this coming, and a lot of folks in washington want to know why not? guest: we begin the week with the speaker of the house saying negotiations between he and president obama had stalled. they were stuck on their -- i guess i would say maybe not their final offers but current offers. boehner said he would raise taxes on those making a million a year or more and get all told $1 trillion in ta

wanted to do. one of the historians who studied, i think it was -- stephen, said if jefferson hadn't decided to make it rather reckless investment of $30,000 in an outcome he probably would've been able to ride out the financial storms of the early 19th century. and another analysis of the financial records show that jefferson, a slaves actually were very productive farmers. and that in one of the first decades of the american agricultural economy, jefferson lost very little money on his farming operation. and so, the slaves were really holding their phones when commodity prices were plunging, and so, i mean and jefferson just kept spending -- the nail in the coffin for him financially was when he had alone with his in-laws. nicholas was speculating in kentucky land acquisitions, and he needed someone to cosign a $20,000 note and he talked jefferson into it and then six months later he went bankrupt. that's when the letters from monticello grill begin to get gloomy. -- really begin to get gloomy. >> i want to follow up -- >> we have a circulating microphone. >> all right. well, i w
with senator stephens on this, we got it done, so that facility stabbeds as a tribute to tan inouye. in 2010 i had a very difficult campaign, as most of us did at that time. and dan said, i'm going to come out there and help you. and i was under fierce attack, and we had an event for veterans, and dan was the speaker and i was the speaker, and as i was speaking we heard these voices of -- screaming demonstrators yelling things, which were not complimentary toward me. let's put it that way. but it was very loud, and i was so humiliate and embarrassed to hear what that's amazing patriot, and keep screaming when danny was speaking about my work and his work. sure enough, the demonstrators kept it up and i was so upset, and i went up to him and i put my arm around him and said, dan, i'm so embarrassed, i'm so sorry. he says, barbara, they're not going to beat you by screaming. don't worry about it. and he went on to go to a couple of events, and took his wife to them, and it was extraordinary. i love danny with all my heart. everytime i looked at him i smiled because he was so good. such a good pe
the release of a report detailing the security failures that led to the deaths of ambassador chris stephens and -- stevens and three other americans. >> the hearing will come to order. my apologies to everybody for the switch in time, but as everybody knows, with the loss of our colleague, senator inouye , the course of events was uncertain yesterday, and it was decided that he, his remains will be brought here at about 10:00. and everybody felt that it would be inappropriate for us to simply be having a hearing and prevebt senators from being able to attend, and all of us would like to attend that. so we are going to try to compact this into the period of time we have between now and about quarter of so that senators can get over there to take part in that ceremony. in addition, obviously with the switch in time, some colleagues and others have not yet gotten here. i do want to share some thoughts at the appropriate time about senator lieu garre and senator webb and senator demint who will be leaving the committee, but i think i will wait until some more of our colleagues are here to be ab

for chris stephens and for the united states, their great -- gratitude for our country provide, i think, a measure of hope. that demonstration of afiction for america and for our envoy who gave his life for those people summed up exactly why we must not look inwards and walk away. finally, let me just say that what happened in benghazi really can't be seen in isolation. there's a truth about diplomacy and foreign service that needs to be processed through the committee and the congress and the country as we examine the events of men ghazi. we have an expeditionary diplomatic corps, and they do face very real risks every day, day in and day out. bad things have happened before, and bad things will happen again, unfortunately, in the future. there will always be a tension between the diplomatic imperative to get outside the wire and the security standards that require our diplomats to work behind high walls and full-body searches. we do not want to conner is tee that wire america off from the world. our challenge is to strike a balance between the necessity of the mission, available resou
summits. now we saw stephen crowder who works here punched in the face, a tent knocked down. i want to get your take on all of this because the silence from president civility is deafening here. they are his allies and he has some sway with them. >> in a number of cases, particularly with threats of violence in michigan, i hope the governor of michigan would call on the president to ask his allies to behave in a civil and decent manner. there's no justification for people threatening violence. i think one of the democratic state senators in michigan said that thereai will be blood. what kind of comment is that from an elected official and why is it being tolerated? i always think the networks and the new york sometimes and others have a real obligation to cover union violence when it occurs and not hide it. i think you're raising a good point. it's one that we should be aggressive in demanding that the president call on his allies to exercise discipline and civility. >> sean: do you remember duringy the tea party rallies? you were speaking about the s media. the media would search high and
exposure therapy. >> comfortable. >> yes. >> you can hear me. >>es. >> stephen king was there the day to the we ares fell. and he's been dealing with it ever since. >> i had a, just such a total feeling that i wasn't the same person. >> like many other rescue workers king has post traumatic stress disorder. he's been through therapy but it didn't work. so now he's trying this virtual therapy. >> i was almost shaking. i mean it brought it back like i was there again watching it. >> it's called virtual reality therapy or vrt. and it uses sounds and 3 d images to force patients to face their fears. >> very slowly patients are taken back to their traumatic experiences. and steven's case, a virtual journey back to september 11th. >> here's how it works. first the patient sees the towers as they were before the attacks. then a plane appears and flies behind to the percent. experts say this readies the patient for what is about to happen. next a plane hits the first tower but without sound. then the fullxperience authentic pictures and surrounds taken from video shot that dayment because it
with stephen dinan. our guest is stephen moore with "the wall street journal." then a look back at columbine shootings with david cullen. "washington journal" is live at 7:00 a.m. eastern here on c- span. >> as president obama begins his second term, what are the most important issues to consider in 2013? tell us. >> kagel you are in grade 6-12, make a video about what you would like to say to the president. >> get your chance to win the grand prize of $5,000. the deadline is january 18. for more information, go to studentcam.org. >> today, president obama nominated senior massachusetts senator john kerry for secretary of state. he is a vietnam war veteran and chairman of the senate foreign lakers -- senate foreign relations committee. this is just under 10 minutes. >> good afternoon, everyone. you know, when i took office, our nation was engaged in two wars and al qaida was entrenched in their safe havens. many of our alliances were frayed and america's standing in the world had suffered. over the past four years, we've begun a new era of american leadership. we ended the war in iraq. we pu
. and one of your former clerks, stephen call brees si, has been writing on american exceptionalism. and he's suggesting that in many areas where we differ from the rest of the world, we may well differ because our system is better, and we should emphatically not copy the rest of the world. >> guest: well, i think call bris si is closer to the truth that sandra day o'connor was, but i don't think either of them gets it quite right. the point is our judges were handed this document and said this is what you administer, this is what you decide cases by. the fact that somebody in a similar society has a somewhat different document is no reason to say, well, we have more similarities than differences, therefore, we'll pick up their or law and apply it as if it were ours. that doesn't make any sense at all. you're given our constitution to interpret, and that's what you should interpret and not what some modern german philosopher thinks about the nature of constitutional law. >> host: one question i've heard asked is why shouldn't our judges not -- borrow from things they think are good opinions
, and hoyas lost to the eagles -- haven't lost since 1982, wouldn't lose last night. au hung tough. stephen lumpkins giving the give and go and the lay-in. hoyas -- you've seen them in person. they got this kid otto porter with 16. hoyas by 15 at the break. second half, back up to porter, throw it down! hoyas beating au 65-48. next up, big east play begins january 5th against marquette. >>> governor's holiday hoops classic, paul hewitt and richmond. trailing by 12, 7 1/2 to go, but 90 seconds to go, edwards missed, aldridge follows to give mason their first lead of the game, 63-62. 5 seconds to go, tied at 64-64. wright for three! oh, you bet ya! at the buzzer, game-high 22 for wright. mason comes all the way back to defeat richmond 67-64. >> very nice. >>> all eyes on calvin johnson last night, needed 182 yards to break a single receiving record, fourth quarter, there it is. c.j. with 225 yards, 11 catches, now has 1892 yards, only 108 to go to get to 2000. of course nobody had ever done what he did last night, nobody ever gotten to 2000. falcons win 31-18. i know you love adrian peterson
with where we just went. >> i love -- i love stephen a. smith. i'm uncomfortable where you just went. our documentary, "black in america," what it was all about. rg3 doesn't fit into parker's sense of what real blackness is. >> like a stereotype. people advocating against stereotypes, stereotyping themselves their own people. >> it's so -- it's so offensive on so many levels. you lined up three white guys to talk about this thing, this term cornball brother, and i tooked an informal poll, and all my black friends. have you ever heard the term, the answer is unanimously by the way no. it turned robert griffin iii, any sense of individuality, and he wants to be defined by who i am, which is a great afrifricki quarterback. >> he feels like he's dodging the question. are you -- what is the role of race in being this great quarterback? right? and for people of color, it's often a challenge. he wants to say i don't want to be defined by being the black quarterback, but at the same time i want to represent all of the black people who look at me as a great quarterback. mr. parker took some great
hikes and spending cuts kick in, is a compromise even possible? stephen hayes joins us. senior writer, "the weekly standard." is it possible? >> hey, gregg. yeah, look, i think it's possible. i thought all along for more than a month we were likely to see some last minute, slap dash kind of unsatisfying deal thrown to won't actually do anything to solve the long-term problems but get politicians out of the bind. gregg: like what? >> like something that extends the bush tax rates for those making $250,000 in the last, maybe amt patch, but won't deal with entitlement spending won't deal with long term issues we have to deal with as a country if we're actually serious about changing the trajectory of our debt. gregg: i'll sure you saw john barosso who said the president is eager to go over the cliff. he wants to go over the cliff. what do you think? >> well i think there are political incentives for the president to do just that. if you think about the long-term political liabilities of the democratic party, they have been basically on taxes and national security. and if the president go
tax refunds would be delayed. stephen miller sent a letter to the house and senate. tax writers saying this is going to be unexpectedly higher taxes for many taxpayers who simply aren't aware of their new tax liability. it will be a total and complete mess. 100 million tax refunds delayed, 30 million more people have to pay the amt. >> you've been looking into the business of guns all week. there is just fascinating stuff going on. >> a billion dollars in profit this year. one forecast, a billion dollars in profit this year for this industry. kint ov i can't overstate how big, powerful and profitable it is to make the guns you're looking at on your screen. the traditional bolt action rifles and guns you think as a big part of the industry, the fastest growing part of the market are the sport rifles. there is a coolness and hipness factor in owning the military style rifles. there is huge soaring demand for those. there are more gun shops in america than there are super markets and mcdonald's restaurants locations combined. think of the impact of this part of the -- you don't talk about
. with millions of americans unemployed this simply makes no sense. stephen moore, senior writer for "the wall street journal." how are you doing, steve? good morning. >> hi, bill. bill: they're saying 43,000 jobs because of this. what, a latex glove gets taxed? i thought it was just like on mri machines and big items like that? >> actually, no. thank you for doing this segment because a lot of americans don't realize when the president calls for all the new taxes in the fiscal cliff negotiation, mr. president we already have a big tax increase that will hit on january 2nd. that of course is the obamacare taxes. you mentioned one of them, the tax on medical devices and medical equipment, bill, which i agree with, congressman price. that will reduce innovation and will reduce the kind of invention and new products we need to keep people healthier. in addition to that, bill, don't forget there is something called 3.8% investment tax surcharge in the obamacare bill that starts in january. one of the things that the president says is a little misleading i will only raise tax rates back where they
the u.s. senate could use stephen colbert. >> of the replacements, i topped south carolina voters' wish lists with 20% supporting me. 20%. that's like half. [ laughter ] >> now my network contract prohibits me from taking on another full-time job. so the senate would be perfect. >> nailed that. >> that's great. >>> welcome back, everybody, to "cbs this morning." we turn now to a story in new york. violent crime in busy midtown manhattan is a fraction of what it used to be. so it was a shock here yesterday when a man was shot and killed in broad daylight. >> it happened outside a school a few steps from carnegie hall, central park, and a major shopping district. as terrell brown reports, it all happened with no warning. >> reporter: witnesses describe the killing as a cold-blooded execution. >> one loud shot. we were all standing here, and we were all scared to death. we looked down the block, we saw the guy on the floor. >> reporter: at around 2:00 p.m. on tuesday, this busy intersection in midtown came to a standstill when the gunman wearing a dark coat and hooded sweatshirt came up be
're not in the union. stephen moore, "wall street journal." who would be next? >> there are a number of states neighbors to michigan really looking at this legislation. i'll name a few to you, bill. pennsylvania, ohio, west virgina, states like that are competing against southern states. remember a lot of jobs and a lot of manufacturing has moved from the midwest, the kind of rust belt of america to the south in part because those southern states are right-to-work. can i mention one other thing if i could, bill, about this issue that is important? bill: sure. >> there is so much misinformation what it means to be a right-to-work state. i want your viewers to know this, if you're a right-to-work state it does not ban unions, bill. simply means that workers who work for a unionized company have the right as an individual to join the union or not. it does not ban unions. bill: to be more specific, if you're not a member of a union, in michigan you're required to pay union dues. >> that is exactly right. bill: under this law you're no longer required to pay dues for something you're not gets servi

ways. we appreciate your service. and remember ambassador stephens as the hallmark of foreign services is about. our challenge here at home and abroad in the context of terrorism is that the terrorists have to only be lucky once. we have to get it right 100% of the time. it's a heavy burden. not an easy one. obviously this time we didn't get it right. but state acknowledges where it made a mistake, but i find it extraordinary is congress is always very good at doing is only casting blame on one side but never seeming to take any responsibility of its own. and i hear voices that will not accept responsibility. i hear about eighteen accountable review boards. i don't believe it's in this administration eighteen accountability review boards. ic it might be the first, if i'm not mistaken. it's going back over administration, and you can't even implement all of accountability review boards if one of the recommendation is significant part is about resources, and you don't have the resources provided by the congress to meet those recommendations. so i think that we need to take this in the
with stephen that the original is a little outdated in terms of facing all the myriad threats and predation that developed in the war on terror and passed very shortly after 9/11 and we know a lot more from our experience so congress appropriately decided it was time for them to take a look at whether or not we needed to be more explicit and in some areas expand on the a u.s. map. to be in favor of something that did require congress to revisit that every couple years it would be useful to make sure our political leadership rather than leave that hanging out there is something for the next ten years as things develop, as threats either expand or recede, our political leaders in congress should appropriately way in, from justice jackson's famous concurrence with congress and the executive acting together that that is the height of authority in these military matters. the executive is constantly involved in these things. we know where the executive stand but congress can act and sit back and the executive from the law so useful clarifying function for the courts if congress does periodically
in america. stephen moore. stephan, you are the bearer of bad news this morning. how much are our taxes going to get hit in just two weeks? >> well, good morning, guys. merry christmas. you though, this is an unbelievable situation because it's been, what, five or six weeks since the election. abc it's amazing that they are still as far apart today from getting a deal as they were when we first started talking about this. if we do go over the cliff. by the way i agree with peter. i still there is a slim chance at getting something done next week before new year's eve. but if we don't get that deal, we're talking about a very major tax increase. not just on people like warren buffet and bill gates but middle class folks. by my calculations if you look at all the taxes that are going up. if we go over the cliff you are talking about if you are a middle class family earning between 45 and $75,000 your tax bill will go up $2,500 a year. >> we have some of these statistics by category here on the screen. this is modern. from zero dollars to $20,000. you are still going to get hit. 400 bucks, steph
it it would be crazy not to protect this. i a ask that the entire stephen be put on the record. also from west virginia as well. >> without objection we have been joined by a the vice chair of our committee and he will give a short opening statements. >> thank you mad them chairman. >> my apologies. i wanted to be here out of respect to my a colleagues to help present the case for funding of the resources that we've underwent during this storm. even if there are only a few couple hundred homes to them that this as far as their lives are concerned. not only are the seashore's in the interval part of that economic opportunity but to those who owned the second homes move there now it is the first home. there is no asset to more valuable than the home that they own. madame chairwoman i thank you for your help and your leadership and asking in this -- unanimous consent my full statement put into the record. >> thank you very much senator lautenberg i look forward to working with you in working with the states that have been devastated. >> they give very but to for the opportunity to testify for the
as they a or b report makes clear. as you said, chris stephens understood in gaza as was anyone and understood the risks as well as anyone, but i think one of the painful lessons we've learned is the imports of being able to take a step back and try to analyze better the broader pattern of security challenges that were emerging. so there's a sense of response build on the part of all of us in the state department for trying to better understand those challenges, not be fixated on credible threats and taken into account in keeping with what was the obvious security and adequacies made all these by the accountability review board in benghazi spent on non-going to be interested and i think all the members will be interested as to how you institutionalize that review that go beyond just simple threats. i would hope you would share -- secretary, you mentioned i think he said streamlining a process or you could move quicker to implement. you also mentioned there may be some concerned with additional marine assignments with the host country. is there anything that we need to be aware of as you implem
thing verbatim. to stephen barlett, copy to ds command center, subject benghazi up to you. the command center is sharing a terrorism event information for your situational awareness. these contact the ds command center for any requester information. as of 0500 eastern standard time the mission of benghazi has been evacuated due to ongoing attacks that resulted in the death of four chiefs of mission personnel, including u.s. ambassador to libya to three additional wounded. at this time, everyone has been evacuated to tripoli as receiving medical aid and awaiting further movement. this is an initial terrorist incident report from the ds command center. this information contained in this report is provided only for immediate situational awareness. additional reports may follow. updating and correcting information protect accordingly. spu this e-mail is unclassified number prevented by voodoo christopher r. page 101. my concern is this, we knew from the start that it was a terrorist attack. it was a terrorist event and for whatever reason we chose to call it something else, a youtube video
different ways. we appreciate your service. we remember that ambassador stephens was a hallmark of what foreign service was all about. our challenge here and abroad in the context of terrorism is that the terrorists only have to be lucky once. we have to get it right when hundred percent of the time. it is a heavy burden. it is not an easy one. this time we do not get it right obviously. the state acknowledges where it made a mistake. i find it extraordinary that congress passed blame on one side and never seem to take responsibility of its own. i still hear voices that will not accept responsibility. i hear from 18 accountability boards. this may be the first it i am not mistaken. obviously this is going back over administrations. you cannot implement the recommendations if one is about the resources and you do not have the resources by congress to meet those recommendations. the state and the congress should look at the responsibility to protect our embassies and diplomatic personnel abroad. reading directly from the unclassified section of the report, the accountability review board
the weekend. this is in stephens pass, washington. san francisco is still working out flight delays caused by wind-driven rain. you can see what it did to northern california as heavy surf pounded the shoreline. we'll bring in alexadrra steele. even a tornado threat you're talking about. that's rare. what are we watching? >> it is rare, suzanne. i want to show you this map. it's rare to have an isolated tornd or two, but a severe weather outbreak is the xpt for her tomorrow is more rare. here's a look. tomorrow, christmas morning, i'm going to delineate the time so you can see who will see what and when. from houston to new orleans, tomorrow morning your severe weather outbreak threat. winds 60 to 80 miles per hour, and very serious tornados and large, damaging hale. it moving in the afternoon and picks up into western florida. from the afternoon into the evening, atlanta to birmingham. both the severe side tomorrow and a snowy side tomorrow, which is rare as well. in florida and georgia the last time we had christmas day tornadoes was in 2006, and there were six. before that in 1969, and
. four americans, including u.s. ambassador chris stephens, were killed in that attack back on september 11 of this year. the independent report calls security at the benghazi consulate, quote, grossly inadequate. it also criticizes the state department for what security was there and relying on local militias. but it does recommend no disciplinary action, at least right now. the report says the attack was the work of terrorists, and that despite those initial reports, there was no protest outside the consulate before that attack. >> what i thought was interesting was our secretary of state's reaction. because ultimately, she is in charge of the state department. we know she's been suffering from this concussion and many people have said, that was very convenient. >> right, questioning the timing. >> questioning the timing. but she says the accountability review board report provides a clear look at syria's systemic challenges that we've begun to fix and says i accept every one of them. so clearly taking responsibility for the state department and saying listen, we've already begun to fi
frightening stephen king novel. it was just a nightmare. >> the word i kept hearing from people who lived there was "violation." this was such a bubble, such a little corner of connecticut, such a safe place for them. and to have this kind of thing visited upon them, to have this man come in and shatter their world, not just their town, but their world. there is a woman who lives two houses away from the school. her children are older now but went to sandy hook elementary, cut through the back woods to go through. she talked about driving through that parking lot, about going to all her son's baseball games at that school. all she said she ever heard was the sound of laughter coming through the woods. and to hear now the sounds of sirens on that friday afternoon, she says things will never be the same. there's a dark cloud over her town. the name newtown and sandy hook will forever be associated with this tragedy. she believes they have to level the school immediately and raise some kind of memorial there. this town is shaken and will be forever. >> the initial shock of what happened and
schwarzkop died at the age of 78. supreme court justice stephen briar talks about the united states constitution and the history of the rule of law. this interview was part of a discussion on china opposed the legal system hosted by the brookings institution. china's >> ok. concepts. for 20 years i have been advising -- roughly half of that on financial economic matters. the other half a variety of topics. about 10 years ago, we started talking about role of law. i said to him at the time, what strikes me about this topic was that other than the occasion i can think of, other than when paul worked at the state department and bill clinton was president, this topic in my view has never gotten the attention it deserves. it has been treated too much as a technical topic. not as a fundamental topic about the relations of the states. in my experience, i always say the chinese leadership, the most distinctive characteristic is they are systematically opened. that is to say the modus operandi is on a particular topic, let's look for the best ideas throughout the world, bring them back, stud
tax hike if we don't act. for weeks stephen has been trying to get the president to come up with a fair, reasonable and balanced solution so we don't go over the cliff. the president thinking he has some sort of a mandate after his reelection has been less than reasonable. in fact, this president has proposed more and more spending and more and more tax hikes in his proposals to the spreerk while the spreerk is -- speaker to is trying to deal with our $16 trillion debt, now $16.4 trillion. the president just can't take yes for an answer. he must think if he keeps slow walking these proposals, the republicans will get the blame and members of his administration have even revealed that they would be more than happy if we went over the cliff. what kind of cruel christmas gift is that? after the speaker and the president exchanged offers this week, house republicans are looking at having votes on two competing pieces of legislation as early as tomorrow. the first is legislation that passed this body over the summer, deeply flawed legislation that every democrat in this body supp
that connection. so the whole idea you bring up, stephen, that you believe that -- to connect the taxes they are paying with what they are getting in some respects, i agree with you and that is one of the challenges. on the first point, i take exception to you saying that my request for raising the cap on social security is a knee-jerk reaction. knee-jerk reaction is a description of somebody just sort of making a decision without thinking about it. i have put a lot of thought on the issue. you and i may disagree on the best solution but i put a lot of thought into it and i think it is the best solution. it may be a solution i am not successful at achieving in terms of a final deal. but if you want to look at the long-term solvency of social security, it is a great way to address it. >> -- host: just a few thoughts, first from our facebook page from a viewer. guest: on the first point about dreams versus reality, i think that what happened last night on capitol hill, the house republican conference will, in fact, help folks realize that it is going to take a bipartisan bill. you can't r
would you feel? >> just on the j.f.k. assasination thing. i just read one of stephen king's new books which is about the assasination and a man who has the ability to go back in time and tries to stop the assasination of j.f.k. does that mean we should put a thing on the front and say this didn't happen? at what point is it someone's responsibility to find out whether there is a backing up of that argument. it seems ridiculous when it's about time travel because there is no time travel yet. to a lot of people that would be absurd, where is that line? it's a gray area. >> i think the answer to somebody who will look at -- watch "24" and say see didn't i tell you americans are torture amongers. it goes to the old question of what is the effect, what's the cause and what's the effect of art and on public perception and behavior. would i personally feel responsible? i thought about it and i do think we all bear some responsibility but not complete responsibility. so somebody who doesn't have a critical capacity to turn on a television and realize this is fiction, this is not a representat

would like to talk a little bit about the fact that stephens said something about the one republican senator. what about harry reid and the veto on everything that comes from the house if he does not like it? the filibuster is that harry reid can decide he will not take it up, but they cannot filibuster? guest: first of all, the filibuster is not in the constitution. it is not a pocket veto, but it is something only the president can do. you are right in the sense that the majority is what determines what the agenda will be. john boehner decides what will come to the floor and when. you just saw it in the house. the unwillingness of john boehner to take up the extended tax cuts. this is not anything new. this is a long tradition in both houses. you have a split congress with both sides not working together. you are exactly right, this is the majority of one house, moving into the other. host: are you still there? caller: i agree with his explanation, but everything comes across two very read and he does not bring it up for a vote, then my senator, that meet stabbed now -- at least ca
